What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Almost, But Not Quite, Entirely Unlike Turkey Cakes

Let's face it, bakers: turkeys look silly.

Real turkeys, I mean.

SO SILLY.

 

So in that spirit, why NOT make your turkey cakes look like a snake on a Mexican poncho?

 

Or a volcano with a chicken beak?

 

Or a ruffled... er...

[long pause]
[gratuitous side-eye]
...decorative... pillow.

Yeeeah.

 

I mean, on the one hand, bakers, this is utterly ridiculous. Have you seen a real turkey's head? It's not even brown.

But on the other hand, when else do you get to illustrate an angry little poop being attacked by technicolor leeches?

Never, that's when.

 

So I say... [cranks up America the Beautiful]... GO FOR IT, bakers.

Embrace the ridiculous!

Stretch those legs!

 

Spread-eagle that turkey!

 

Anything goes!!

[record screeches to a halt]

Except this.

THIS IS A NO-GO, BAKERS.

 

Thanks to Heather M., Stieg, Laura B., Sandy F., Dave & Alison, DeLoris N., & Morgan R. for making us all do a triple-take. (Still pretty sure those ARE supposed to be turkeys, though.)

The Mickey Mouse Mind Trick

In honor of Mickey Mouse's birthday I'm about to give you a crazy cool gift: I'm about to make you forget what Mickey Mouse looks like.

Impossible, you say?

Then WATCH THIS:

 

 

 

It's slipping away, isn't it?

 

Is this right? Can you tell?

 

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

 

And finally, here's one from a vintage cake decorating book that proves they just don't make 'em like they used to:

Thank goodness.

 

Happy birthday, Mickey!

 

Thanks to Marion G., Marshelle G., Saturn S., Nicole A., Heidi L., Anony M., & Emma P. for reminding us Mickey used to eat childrens' souls. Ah, the good ol' days.
